Despite sharing many of the same interests and pastimes, they both are inspired by different things that lead them to work seamlessly in a creative setting. Grace was instrumental in getting Steven Vitali to Hollywood, where they met up first at Warner Bros. In Burbank, California at a film screening.

By Music and Media Focus
Steven Vitali is an internationally recognized award-winning composer, arranger, and lyricist for film, theater, television, radio, records, and more, with over 2000 melodies and arrangements to his credit. Although his recordings are often found in the new age genre, Steven is hesitant to label it as that and sees it more as "theme music." Right from the start on the opening track, Steven's extensive experience as a film composer makes its presence felt. There is a cinematic feel to this piece that could easily be on a movie soundtrack.
Traces of the Orient are heard on an evocative piece entitled "A Sign Of The Dragon," which incorporates gongs, temple bells, erhu, koto, flute, and percussive elements into a lush symphonic arrangement that is quite stately and beautiful.
Similarly symphonic, yet revealing a more sensitive side is the lovely "Forever Germaine," with it's lofty vocal choirs soaring over rich strings and horn section. Steven's piano work is particularly brilliant as he steps into the spotlight with it briefly mid-song displaying his impressive skills. The sounds of wind and waves, rain and thunder set the stage on "Soul And The Senses" - a nice touch. The range of his music is impressive, even from one song to the next, such as the rousing anthemic "Tomorrow Starts Here" which sounds like it could be theme music for the Olympics, to the lofty "My Father My Prayer" with its harps and angelic choirs.
One of Steven's most outstanding musical qualities is his masterful blending of diverse elements. The electronic drum tracks are very contemporary sounding, and sometimes not what you might expect in the context of music with new age, pop, and classical influences, but they always work and showcase a unique musical personality.
Steven's abilities in composition, arranging, and orchestration are absolutely first rate, as are his skills as an instrumentalist. While his style is his own, as a point of reference, I'd venture to say that listeners who enjoy works of Yanni, and particularly Vangelis, will find a lot to like in the music of Steven Vitali and his "Language Of The Soul" release.
